We’re reprinting this post for the fourth year in a row since so many of you loved the dog pumpkin-carving stencils. Please send in any photos of the pumpkins you carve and we’ll post them to share with everyone.
(9/27/09) So you love dogs and live in the Land of Dogs. Being as dogmatic as you are, you want to carve your pumpkin to look like your dog but you’re not sure how to do it. We’ve solved that problem for you. Now you can get free dog stencils that make carving pumpkins much easier. And please send in pictures of any of your dog pumpkin masterpieces and we’ll share them with the group.
The stencils were designed by Diane Starkey and are from the Good Housekeeping website in an article entitled “Free Pumpkin-Carving Stencils of Favorite Dog Breeds.”
Jon Gosselin gives back his dogs.
Stupid people get to be on TV all the time. We watch these shows with the stupid people because we can’t believe that anyone would do such stupid stuff and then go on TV and tell everyone about it. And I’m generally OK about that as long as everyone involved is a consenting adult. That means that any animal or child who can’t choose to be there shouldn’t be there. That means that there shouldn’t be any dogs used in reality TV shows or wild animals brought on talk shows or invasive nature shows where animals in their own habitat get heckled and poked by a man with a stick. So when I read about evil Jon Gosselin, who has not one quality that should make him a celebrity, giving his dogs back to the breeder he got them from because he couldn’t take care of them anymore, I became very cross. The German Shepherds never agreed to be on that show and now they don’t have homes. And of course Jon blames Kate for this. Go to radaronline.com to read the whole story so you can be cross about too.
There are three important ways you can help solve the dog over-population crisis:
1. Adopt your next dog from a shelter
2. Spay or neuter your dog
3. Commit to keeping your dog for their whole lives
I don’t know if Jon’s dogs were spayed or neutered but he broke at least two of these rules. Enough is enough. Make him go pluck his eyebrows in the privacy of his own apartment and never come out again. We’re really sick of him now.
